RE: Onan BFA Oil - Why not 20W-50?

Have you tried the 20W-50 in your onan yet? I tried a multi-weight oil in my Emerald 3 6.5 once and found that it burned through way too much oil. I do not recall which multi-weight oil I tried, however, and I did try it during the summer. Miles

RE: Onan 5500 won't stay running on the road

What kind of load do you have on it while you are driving down the road? Miles

RE: CB Radio & Antenna Installation Suggestions

I'm no expert either. On my last class A I used a dual antenna set up. I tried some different locations with an SWR meter before finalizing the set up. Miles

RE: Chevy P-30 w/454 owners?

Not sure if yours is fuel-injected or carbureted. Certainly a carburetor adds some issues. Insufficient heat shielding around the starter resulted in a failure that I had on a trip. The brakes should be carefully gone over. You might want to replace the brake fluid. X2 on the fan clutch. Does yours have the aux. electric fans? Make sure the ground is good. I am a strong advocate of carrying a spare tire. Have you replaced the hoses? God luck with your trip. Miles

RE: Adding a window AC to trailer

I use a window AC on an occasional basis during hot weather. I put it in a window and have a frame that goes around it. I plug it into the pedestal separately so it doesn't draw off the coach breaker box. You want to permanently install yours along the side? A significant projection out of the side could be a hazard while driving and might be a violation. Better check first. I have seen them mounted that way out the back of truck campers. Good luck with your project. Miles

RE: Smoldering fire behind refrigerator

I'd try it again with the cover off and keep a close eye on it. Miles

RE: 1988 gulf stream 460 Ford motor vacuum lines

Look on the engine, air cleaner cover and all around for a sticker that has a diagram of the vacuum lines. If that fails, go to a local auto store and get a Haynes or Chilton's manual for a 1988 or so ford truck. You could also try contacting a ford dealer, maybe they could email you a diagram. Good luck with your repairs. Miles

RE: AC help

Make sure that it is getting the right voltage. Miles

RE: Dual tire inflation from standard compressor?

Search under "dual tire inflator" and buy one off the net, or get a t-fitting and some other parts at a hardware store and make one for yourself, probably cheaper. Miles

WyoTraveler, could you give me some kind of diagram and a suggestion for which transfer switch to buy? Thanks, Miles

RE: limits of 1999 GMC suburban 1/2 ton

I have a '99 Suburban like yours and I would not tow a larger trailer with it. Faced with your dilemma I bought a class A instead. I hope you find a good combination. Miles

How can I run both air conditioners?

On my HR I have a switch so I can run either the front or the rear air conditioner when on shore power but not both. What is the best way to run both air conditioners at the same time when on shore power? I know that it will involve some re-wiring. Where and how do I re-wire? Thanks for your help. Miles

RE: 1987 Class A P30 Chevy 454 fuel pump/filter

The one with the multiple hoses might be the switching mechanism for the two tanks. Do you have a switch on the dash? See if switching it results in current at the mechanism. Hopefully the new filters will solve your stalling problem. Miles

RE: questions,,,newbie,,,,confused ,,engine issues ?

That price seems way too high. I'd keep looking. Have any RV that you are looking at checked out thoroughly by a mechanic you trust. I hope you find a great RV at a great price. They are out there. Miles

RE: A successful trip in an old Class A

I have the same feeling every time I put our 1989 HR back to bed at the storage yard.

RE: Kwikee Steps - only work when battery charger is applied

Look for a ground to the chassis frame from the control box and motor. It might need to be cleaned up or even re-done. Miles

RE: Kwikee Steps - only work when battery charger is applied

Check the ground for the steps.
